for your support today. we have a lot of folks around us. and one silverstein. [ laughter] >> all about rich. i just want to say thank you to the team at goodby silverstein, the social media campaign. you have worked incredibly hard. rich, your team is amazing. come up here and tell everybody about the logo and the campaign. [applause] >> we have to win this. we are not in it to come in second. we've got to win it. i challenge anyone to have better looking goal posts than that. we have remarkable area. we have a great group of people. the logo really reflects the expressiveness and vibrancy and casualness of the bay area.
4:31pm
it is a very unique place in all of america. we also live in the technology center of what is going on in the nation and maybe the world. we really wanted to draft off the modern cleanliness of those companies, of google, twitter, apple, yahoo!, facebook. probably forget someone. they are fueling the economy, we want to draft off that. that makes this interesting. we added a hash tag to the name. no one's done that. we want the bay area -- i guess there are 8 million, maybe more or maybe less, we want them all to participate. by this logo it says come on, let's show the nfl we are in this together that. is pretty much it. [applause] >> short and sweet.
4:32pm
thank you, rich silverstein. listen, the ceo of the 9ers is here. obviously this is not happening if the 9ers are not building a state-of-the-art, brand-new facility. we are excited to see it. it is going up fast. will it be ready in time for super bowl 50. we hope we have the honor of hosting it. mr. york. [applause] >> it is a pleasure to be here and bid for super bowl 50. the last time there was a super bowl in northern california i wasn't quite 4 years old. you have super bowl in palo alto at stanford stadium that the 49ers happen to plan and happen to win. it would be nice to recreate that type of feeling where you bring the entire bay area together. not just for a game but potentially a super bowl
4:33pm
parade on market street afterwards, that be nice? we have worked hard for a very long time to build a state-of-the-art stadium. that is not something easy to do. when you look at what this stadium will represent, will it represent the bay area, all of northern california from the sft ware driven stadium that the smart stadium we will where you will have ticket lists, cash lists, great food options that are local organic options. you will have great infrastructure, you will have all the things that make a super bowl an unbelievable experience. i'm happy to see a football team bring a region together for the largest day in sports. more people for one single event will be watching this than just about anything in the world. i'm happy to go to work
4:34pm
with the other owners, lobby the other nfl owners to make sure they see how great the bay area can be. it will be an unbelievable time, unbelievable event. we need everybody to make it work. so i will turn it over to daniel, because he's got a lot of work to do. i called supervisor mark ferrell before the news came. i know he's been working hard on this. i asked if he would be willing to be our point person for the board of supervisors. he is excited and i'm happy to be working on this. >> thanks, daniel. to mayor lee as well. board president david chu,
4:35pm
jed, mr. silverstein. thank you. how lucky are we? over the past few weeks we have seen america's cup, fleet week, giants home games, 49ers and countless other festivals. as we sit here a few hours from another great day of san francisco sports, with the 9ers hosting the seahawks, going to beat them. hosting the cardinals in st. louis and winning game four. today we can celebrate the bid for the next super bowl in san francisco and bay area. as has been mentioned the super bowl is a world class event and deserves a world class city and world class region to host it. as a kid who grew up here in san francisco and in the fall to trek every sunday to candlestick park to watch the 49ers play, now this is such an exciting time that we get to have the chance to host the event that we only got to
4:36pm
watch on tv for the past few decades. what an incredible time for our city. even if the super bowl's played down the road in santa clara, for us, these are the san francisco 49ers. always have been, always will be. san francisco 49er fan also be so excited and come together as a region and city behind this. it will have enormous impacts, bringing the neighborhoods together from sunset to bay view. think about the thousands of jobs. hundreds of millions of economic activity for our city. more importantly the opportunity to display san francisco on the world stage. when we had america's cup a few weeks ago, and nbc broadcast the bay and events live on sunday, we couldn't ask for better pr event anywhere than what we achieved that sunday. now we get to do it on the world stage to host the
4:37pm
biggest sporting event in the world. what an opportunity we have. this is an exciting time for our city. i don't think we can or won't rest on our laurels or take anything for granted. as mentioned, we have a lot of hard work ahead of us. i know the big committee and those of us in city hall will work tirelessly to make sure our region and city put our best foot forward and once again give san francisco the chance to shine on the national and inter national spotlight. i look forward to playing a leadership role in that. thank you very much. [applause] >> i want to give supervisor chu and president of board of supervisors to come up here as well. we look forward to working with supervisor ferrell and yourself as we move forward toward the may bid. if you would like to say a few words. good morning, i'm excited you decided to do
4:38pm
this announcement in the heard of my district, in district three. thank you for that. san francisco, one of the reasons i'm so proud to be an elected official is we are a becon when it comes to or shared values, marriage equality, environment. we are a becon to the rest of the world when it comes to our sports. i was proud a couple years ago to carry the legislation around america's cup bid to work with mayor lee to work with the warriors. i'm particularly pleased to work with supervisor ferrell and 49ers organization to make sure we win this bid. in my first couple weeks i put in a call to a young man named jed york. along with colleagues who were new in 2009 we asked you to consider sticking around in the city.
4:39pm
while we may someday curse you for stop take our blessed team out of the city, we love the fact we are working together on this bid. we love that our 49er also continue to play great football down the street. we love the fact we still have hometown pride in the best football team in the franchise. thank you. looking forward to getting this done. [applause] >> i want to reiterate two points and open up to questions, if you have them for the folks up here. this will be the most shared super bowl super bowl bid ever. that is the key, hash tag super bowl and help us bring the bowl to the bay. we are doing well. keep talking, okay. i also want to say that when mayor lee asked me to do this, i told him this needed to be the most
4:40pm
philanthropic, environmentally friendly and most sustainable ever. that is why i agreed to do this. my work is tipping point community. it is incredibly important to me and to my board and something i ran by them. we said this was an opportunity to highlight the needs in our community, 1.3 million people are too poor to meet basic needs in this region, we think we can highlight the needs in this community through this effort and make this a community wide event and not just for the few but for our entire region and our entire community. so it is important to me that that is a huge part of this effort. we will take questions, if you all have any in the back there. supervisor chu alluded
4:41pm
to it, there was bad blood, a fight over where the stadium would be. all that by-gones, axe is buried, everybody loves each other and work together without tension or anything? >> i look forward to working together with everybody up here. i look forward to working with mayor mattiace yous, mayor reed. i think this is an opportunity for the region to come together. what happened in the past is the past. we have an unbelievable opportunity to all come together, to bring the bowl to the bay and bring super bowl 50 to the bay area. i don't think anything should get in that way. i don't think anybody up here will let that happen. >> what happened in the past we all agreed. we were all shocked and didn't want it to happen and did our best to do it. but then it is fact. the stadium is going up in santa clara. we accept and acknowledge
4:42pm
that. the next question is what do we do about it? we are not -- i'm not -- i'm not one to sit and mope about something we lost. now we build on what can we do. i think this is one of those ideas that in those days where we were asking where is our legacy with the 9ers, this was one of those very concrete ideas that jed and i talked about as moving forward with everybody and making sure we take the lead but sure it and gain mum more than one can expect that. is why we are having the incredible team. i think we are past it. we have an opportunity to build on that relationship, even more creatively than before. i think this is one of those great ideas. will it be an effort in and of itself. we are not lost on ther ideas, the continued legacy.
4:43pm
this is is the 49ers. we want to celebrate and build it bigger. we will build on the success and penetrate the things we have wanted to do with great, great events that cause all of us to be inspired well beyond the sport itself. to go back on tuesday, the nfl announced san francisco will be bidding against miami for super bowl 50. the runner up will be placed into the bid for super bowl 51. we are hopeful we will win 50. if we are the runner up we
4:44pm
would be put against houston for 51. that is how it will work. we look forward to the challenge. >> one other question, may be premature. with the out-of-towners, have you thought about how, if everything is based in san francisco, how the people will get down to santa clara? how that will work? >> we have talked about it and look forward to using the great public transportation. caltrans, great buss that are every morning picking up san franciscans, taking them down to silicon valley. we feel confident and confident we can make that happen in working with sf travel and the other visitor's bureaus down in the peninsula and south bay. we feel confident we can make that happen. >> i would say you see all the seismic retrofitting with the bay bridges, that is another reason why. >> everyone is from san
4:45pm
francisco. the tag line was like go sf super bowl. the game will be in santa clara. what exactly is san francisco's involvement. are there events held here? >> yes, a great question. the super bowl 50 will be an iconic game. we expect a week up to the game, the tailgating will be in the parking lot of santa clara. many of the events will happen in san francisco. we believe every hotel from san jose to san francisco will be full. we believe this game benefits napa, caramel and more but san francisco will be the focal point of events leading up to the sunday game. >> ron conway, one of our committee members. >> our competition is miami.
4:46pm
the statement is over an hour away. it is the same situation. >> i think the -- >> past super bowls have taken place where you have to travel to the stadium so we feel we are okay in that regard. that is a great point. someone. >> joe want to speak to the travel or issues? >> joe dalton with san francisco travel. the region can accommodate this. we are making sure it is a regional benefit. the businesss in san francisco will benefit and we will see job creation and tax generation but also we will see it down the peninsula and throughout the region, as daniel said. we can accommodate it, we
4:47pm
have accommodated events before. the super bowl last time was in stanford away and san francisco was the host and regional event. we are looking forward to it and the benefit this region will get from hosting the super bowl. >> the nfl will have the super bowl at meadowlands, outside new york -- how far santa clara is. could be the first snowy super bowl. is there any concern about the nfl, the fact in february we could have horrible rain or beautiful sunshine about the weather? >> i have looked ahead. it is supposed to be sunny that day. we are excited to put that in the bid package. my mom reminds me my birthday is february 4th, all grown up. we had all of my parties in the glorious sun so i think we are in good shape. we meet the nfl
4:48pm
requirements of temperature. we are above that, so we are in great shape on that front. >> so be it. whatever. >> i don't think it is going to rain. >> any questions? >> we can have two weeks leading up to the event. what sort of things will be part of the overall. >> i have been told by the nfl the past super bowls -- jed can speak to this as well, there's over 200 events and parties, opportunities for us to highlight the best of this region. we don't have the details, looking at february 2016 if we are fortunate enough to win this bid. but there is a lot of different events that go on. every restaurant will be full. all hotel also be full. event spaces will be full from san jose to santa clara, san francisco and i
4:49pm
have started talking to people in napa and sonoma. they are excited to be as well. we said earlier super bowl 50 is very special. the nfl has been playing games in other countries for the sport. san francisco is an inter national city so we will probably have additional events that no one's thought of in terms of not only celebrating the 50ses but emphasizing inter national perspective on the sport of football. that is a key strength. like any franchise, they are looking for more market gain, this is where it will happen. >> we are going to ask rich to come up. if this group could stay
4:50pm
and answer questions. but rich has a special way to throw this out. once again thank you to goodby silverstein for everything. >> i like that. my birthday it rained every day. snowed. what is football without -- >> wet weather for me. >> has to fit him just right. take that off. [ laughter] >> the mayor wanted -- >> before you leave i have a surprise. sophia will be a major opera singer. today she will sing something we will hear a lot of for the next year.

>> welcome to culture wire. we will look at the latest and greatest public art project. recently, the airport unveiled the new state of the art terminal. let's take a look. the new terminal service and

american airlines and virgin america was designed by a world- renowned architecture's firm. originally built in 1954, the building underwent massive renovation to become the first registered >> we are actually live now, and so good morning and welcome to the public safety committee of the san francisco board of supervisors my name is john avalos, the chair of the committee and joined to my right by supervisor christina
4:54pm
olague, who will be joined shortly by eric mar who is also a member of the committee and our clerk and erica and we are staffed by the sfgtv and could you share with us your announcements? >> please, make sure to silence all cell phones and complete the speaker cards and any documents to be included as part of the file should be submitted to the clerk, the items acted upon will appear on the january 13th, 2013, agenda unless otherwise stated. >> could you call items. >> hearing to review the san francisco police department and general orders related to tasers including the department's plan to equipment the officers and the crisis intervention team with tasers. >> thank you, madam clerk. we are just joined by supervisor eric mar, this is a
4:55pm
hearing that i called forward in the context of having years dialogue about the use of tasers or electronic controlled weapons in san francisco. this is something that has been taken up in this time, by the police commission, but since, it is discussion that is happening ongoing, with many of our committees across san francisco, i wanted to bring it forward as a hearing to be able to get some input from the board of supervisors and also to hear what plans are from the police department as well about how they want to move forward. in the middle of this discussion, is also the work of the crisis intervention team. there was a resolution that was passed last march by the police commission that gave broad latitude for the police departments to really strengthen the crisis intervention work and team and training. and i would hope to get an update on that today. i believe that the greatest use
4:56pm
of or great use of police department energy is around people who are dealing with mental health issues and mental health crisis and the crisis intervention team is really geared to responding to that great need we have here in san francisco. i am concerned personally about the use of electronic controlled weapons, tasers, especially how they could be used in a show of force, not just bringing about compliance but in a show of force on people who are mentally ill in san francisco and i think that for me it makes a lot of sense that we make our work around crisis intervention as strong as it can be. before considering, you know, use of lethal force in the department. i am not a decision maker through but this is part of a hearing from hearing from the supervisors and members of the public. we also have here, i am happy
4:57pm
to have chief greg sure and who is here to present on this issue. he only has a limited amount of time here this morning and so i would like to call him up first to discuss his objective or his interest, the work of the department around electronic control weapons, tasers, mr. sure. >> good morning, members of the public. thank you for affording me the time prior to this hearing being schedule, i had made a commitment to be at fransisco middle school to talk to the students and i like to keep my commitments to the kids. but this is an important meeting so i appreciate you letting me go first. when i became chief of police there had been a resolution passed by the police commission to look into less lethal options. there was a process described in that resolution that members
4:58pm
of the commission, the chief of police, or the police department and the officers and citizen complaints would arrive and they would do a survey if you would of the options available and proposal as to policy, and then convene the community meetings to vet interest, and opinions of the public, many of the people share your opinion that they don't want us to have tasers. i examined various recommendations and reports from across the country as to how to most prudently get less lethal options, responsibility in the hands of officers and if you look at the perpstudies and other outlets it was that they were not recommended that they go out wholesale to a police department for then you do see a spike or various officers go to that device first, verses using the other
4:59pm
things. so, after we had the first thing that we did when i became chief was initiated a policy asking officers to basically slow down, to back up, call the super superviser to the scene and called the officers who have a greater expertise in dealing with people in crisis. and we have been very, successful over my time as chief in dealing with folks who are only a danger to themselves and this prescribed policy of slowing down and engaging has gotten the folks the help that they needed. unfortunately earlier this year there was a person in crisis who was not only a danger to himself but had harmed another person and we didn't have any option between our stick and our pepper spray and lethal force and unfortunately, when the person came at the officer, the officer had to use her firearm and that person did not survive his injuries. at this point in time, i thought it
